    Well I convinced my friend to get his bloodwork done, because he displayed all the classic signs of a testosterone deficiency. It started as a joke, but the more i thought about it and asked him about it, he actually fits the symptoms. I was just wondering what a good range would be for the free test and test levels in a 16 year old kid. Thanks in advance. I googled, but I couldn't find one specificaly for a teenage boy.

    Ya, I was thinking 500-900, is there a range that he should be in though, I'm assuming a teenager typically has more test than a 50 year old man.

    edit:Why would I lie about something like that. I wouldn't be embarassed by it, its not like it would be my fault.

    why would a teenage boy be lacking in test. he is most likely undergoing puberty where all his androgenic hormones will be skyrocketing in a short period of time. and why the hell would it be YOUR concern, how would a 15 year old know what test deficiency is?

    and if he really did get bloodwork done, his physician would've told him an acceptable normal range for him, no need for a friend to post on an internet msg board to find out for him :mamoru:

    and secondly as a teenager, the last thing that ever concerned me was low test. :mamoru: hell, i didn't even know such a condition existed at that age. which really makes your thread even more suspicious in nature. think about it. you're 15, he's 16, and for some reason, you know he's exhibiting low test symptoms.

    red flags
    1) how are you even aware what low test symptoms are at this early an age?
    2) how do u even know to suggest bloodwork to diagnose his condition again at this early an age?
    3) low test should not be a problem of someone undergoing puberty

    Dude, just cup his balls. If they're big, he's alright. If they're small, he's got low test.
